THE BODY SHOP MORINGA SHOWER GEL REVIEW

Wednesday, July 03, 2019


Let’s begin today’s post with some sweet old memories. Around 4 years back, I have written a post in this blog on The Body Shop Moringa Body Milk. And if you read the post, then you will know how much I adore the product.
I love The Body Shop products in general. They are one of my most favorite brands whose skin care products are just dreamy. Their Moringa range has been close to my heart for a long time. Once you use anything from this range, you will go back to it again and again. Today, I would like to share my experiences about one of my favorite The Body Shop Moringa Shower Gel with you, which is outstanding to use in this Monsoon.


First, let’s talk about Moringa Seeds.
In Western countries, Moringa is used in tablets or in powder form as a dietary supplement. In Indian cuisine, Moringa Pods are widely used. They are delicious in various Vegetable Curries and even make a fine, tasty soup. Along with that, Moringa leaves are also used for making some delightful recipes.
A little TMI, but I can’t help sharing the fact that in our house garden, we used to have two Moringa trees and I remember playing around it in my childhood days and also used to have delish recipes out of the pods and leaves. Though we use Moringa Pods in our day to day cuisine, not many of us know about their amazing health benefits. So, let's see what those are:

Moringa pods:

a) Are rich in Antioxidants
b) Help lowering Blood Sugar levels
c) Help lowering Cholesterol level
d) Are high in Fiber and Iron
e) Are packed with Antiseptic and Anti-inflammatory properties
f) Have Calcium in it which helps in joint pain
g) Improve sleep

Okay now…enough info for a post. I swear I am gonna talk about the product now. But don’t get disheartened by this because a healthy skin always comes with a healthy body. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š So, it is not at all a waste of time to get to know about some beneficial facts.

My experience:

The Body Shop handpicks the Moringa seed oil, sourced from Asili Natural Oils in Rwanda. This Moringa range delivers a magnificent aromatic scent like nobody else. This shower gel is excellent to use, especially during summer and monsoon when your body needs the perfect synergy of hydration and freshness. 
It lathers up really well and deeply conditions the skin without any dryness. Skin feels amazingly soft and plump, and the mind explores the absolute freshness. Not only that, your whole bath area will smell like a Spa throughout the day, which is an extra bonus.
This shower gel takes out the grease just perfectly. The moisturizing agent penetrates deep into the skin and protects it with moringa seeds oil’s rich omega 9 and behenic acid content. And cherry on top, not only women, but men too can use this shower gel and enjoy to the fullest. So, if you want, get this as a surprise gift for your husbands and boyfriends.
Quantity wise, this 250 ml. bottle will last you around 2 to 2 and half months if you use it regularly. Also, keep an eye for a Sale, you can get this on discount most of the time. Don't you think it's a bargain? 
Even though this shower gel contains Sulfate, this is great to detoxify your day’s exhaustion in a jiff. Because of sulfate, it gives beautiful foamy texture, but they are really mild on the skin.
Of course, it would be great to have a sulfate-free product, but I guess, then it will not lather up well and therefore will not have a deep cleansing effect.


The Body Shop has so many variants of different shower gels. You can obviously try according to your own choice. But personally, I would highly recommend this Moringa Shower Gel if you are a lover of floral notes. Along with the Moringa Body butter/sorbet/yogurt and a dash of the Moringa perfume will take your day into the next level.
What’s your favorite shower gel from The Body Shop? Let me know.

Cheers!!!
Happy Living…
